This week our design focus has taken us all the way to Venice, Italy. An exhibit organized by the Michelangelo foundation- Homofaber. Homo Faber aims to put fine craftsmanship on the global map and increase recognition and visibility for master artisans.
This particular exhibit caught our eye which has been created by none other than India Mahdavi. Based on the concept of the ocean, this unique space is really intriguing. • Intricate rattan marquetry made by one of the last master artisans to work this technique inspires an abstract of a winter garden that pays homage to painter Henri Rousseau. • Exquisite handmade embroidery graces the walls of a contemporary living space. • Precious upholstery so complex it can only be made by hand is used to create bold flourishes of colour evoking the Venice lagoon.
